there is no chance of these people going ohm any time soon. they have been here since the tipoff at 6:00. they celebrated with confetti, screaming, shouting, having a blast waiting 40 years for this. here are some of the sights and sounds from that win. [ cheers and applause ] [ screaming ] [ screaming ] [ cheers and applause ] >> i condition hear anything! [ laughter ] this place is great! warriors! >> we did it baby. >> all right, we did it. >> lebron said he's the best player in the world?
we're the best team in the world! this is team work. >> i feel great that they won! >> this is unbelievable! unbelievable! >> i waited 40 years for this. [ cheers and applause ] [ screaming ] [ screaming ] [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: another thing the fans out here are excited tonight about is that final championship here, we got the shirt out here as well. we also got the hat. all of this stuff on sale at the team store other at westfield mall. those are on sale for another hour or so until midnight. and the store will open again at 8:00 a.m. so this will be a hot item. everybody wants one of these, guys. >> i'm sure they are selling like hot cakes and tomorrow too i'm sure. all right, thank you christin. >> reporter: absolutely, i got mine. >> looks good on you.
>> she got the t-shirt and the city of oakland gets a title. the bay area celebration literally exploding over the city of oakland tonight. chopper 5 getting the bird's eye view of fireworks shooting up from the coliseum. some people brought their own. why not? set off in the parking lot. and oakland city hall tonight lit up in blue and gold for the nba champs. feels good to say it doesn't it? dennis o'donnell is in cleveland as we speak. it is late. but, i got a feeling the party there is still going on. dennis, what an amazing finish to this championship season. how do you put words to this one? >> reporter: well, you probably have to go back 40 years ago, ken, i think to put it in proper perspective. at that time, the warriors were supposed to get swept by the washington bullets. instead, the warriors did the sweeping. now 40 years later, i think there were still doubters in the finalling because of lebron james. but oakland is title down
tonight. in fact, at one point, it seemed like it was 5-1 against lebron james. the cavs took the momentum into halftime when tristan thompson put back lebron's miss. they took a brief lead in the third quarter, but the warriors kicked it into high gear. curry from downtown and a ten point lead in the 4th inning. then draymond green hits andre iguodala in the corner for the 15-point lead. curry had 25 points in the game. iguodala also had 25. the warriors win it 105-97. let the celebration begin. >> i remember coming into oracle as a player year after year. playing against lousy teams, and the fans were there every single year. loud, supportive, passionate, so, i could not be happier for our fan base because they support us through everything. >> your dad never won a championship. can you just talk about how
special that is to be able to share with with him? >> he is living through me and my teammates. this is my whole family in this journey. i can't be more proud of him as a father, and a role model example for me. and i'm hoping to make him proud tonight. >> reporter: and ken, elizabeth, andre iguodala becomes the first plainer the nba finals history to have not started every single game in the finals and win the finals mvp. so, that sort of typifies how this team ran all season long. we will have more in sports but it is great to bring the championship home. the warriors will come home tomorrow, the parade on friday. guys? >> fantastic. >> cannot wait. >> thank you dennis. we will check in with you in a few minutes. riley curry stealing hearts yet again. watch her sneak up behind dad
steph. she's a little sleepy. he picks her up and gives him a kiss before she passes out on his shoulder. pretty cute. steph rushed over to plant a kiss on riley who ducked away and his wife. the trio shared a very sweet family hug. the celebration continues in san francisco tonight. that is where our betty yu is now. hey betty. >> reporter: hey liz. so earlier, i was in selma, moved to the mission district. now we are in front of city hall. all across town, we have heard controlled excitement. people really favoring and enjoying the moment tonight in a very safe way. right now, people are coming by to admire that warriors ground banner and take it all in. it is a moment most fans say they have waited they're whole lives for. >> i have had season tickets my whole life. it is a blessing. i'm so happy. there's no words to explain

testing the projectors for the mayor's conference friday. a big day for the bay area. i think there is a parade in town. >> yeah, there will be a parade in town and i think the celebration will continue until probably the rest of the week. pretty exciting. glad that it is controlled though. that is always better. all right betty. >> reporter: absolutely. >> thanks betty. all right, here they come. hot off the presses, the to 15 nba champions golden state warriors, the t-shirts, the sweat-shirts, the championship hats. you name it. they will be popping up in stores, street corners, any minute now. this warrior gear is priceless. check it out. a group called better health east bay donated warriors onesies to some lucky bay area newborns. this is at the medical center in berkeley. the governor who used to be the mayor of oakland, remember? jerry brown tweeted thanks

celebrating another right of passage, a 21st birthday. >> for this to have happened at this time when just as the students are arriving, it touches all of us. >> reporter: tonight, bidding inspectors are piecing together what happened. we showed structural engineer yagmore the photos. >> they should be able to handle this kind of weight. >> reporter: he believes the area was rotting for years unnoticed. >> i presented there might be some kind of damage after the construction. from the photos i observed some water damages. >> reporter: before the collapse, someone made a noise complaint to police about the loud partying. but tied up with the shooting, police never responded. about an hour later ... >> it is unthinkable. it sun bearable. it was one of ours. >> reporter: this is a relatively new building. it opened back in 2007. at this hour, all the balconies
have been red tagged as inspectors do their work. we reached out to the property managers here at greystar, but we have not yet heard back. in berkeley, mark kelly, kpix5. >> to give you a better idea, this is what it looked like before. the upper balcony is the one that collapsed onto the one below it. debris is all that is left. you can see the damage there on the right as it completely dissent rated and fell down. the first 911 call came in at 12:40 a.m. >> i think that one of the balconies broke and 10 people fell from the second or the third floor. >> two more ambulances to this event please. >> kpix5's andria borba is outside highland hospital in oakland where three of the victims are being treated tonight. >> reporter: ken, the victims were taken to hospitals all over the bay area, but some did end up here at highland
hospital in oakland. it is already tomorrow in ireland where they are waking up with the knowledge that six of their own died in this accident. the combination of crime scene tape and crumbled party cups is always a sign of youthful exuberance that took a terrible turn. >> the alameda county coroner's office had the difficult task of giving six families the most difficult phone call of their life. >> reporter: ashley donaho and olivia burke were cousins. ashley was with olivia last night as the balcony gave way. >> our hearts are breaking. >> reporter: nikolai schuster t, they were all 21-year-old irish students in what has become an irish right of passage, the students were in the bay area on j-1 work visas working and traveling state side for the summer. >> this is normally the high point. it is deeply tragic and it

the sprinkler was broken and has since been repaired. speaking of that drought, no rain or any kind of moisture in sight it looks like. >> yeah. the dry season is going to act just like it should which is very dry. we had the rainfall last week. this week, it will be rising temperatures and a lack of rainfall. it was raining three-pointers earlier. that's the good news. san jose, 57. napa, 53. we have to do a forecast for a parade. oakland, 8:00 in the morning as you prepare or arrive for the parade, it will be a cloudy start. 55 degrees. but once all the festivities get going, the dubs are parading through oakland 63 degrees. you may want to think about bringing a light jacket. sunday, father's day. it is also the first day of summer. 9:39 in the morning summer begins. ridge of high pressure offshore hanging out pretty far away from us gave us the strong push of air. today, muff sunnier, much less wind, also, milder and that ridge will scoot by to our
south. a light on shore flow does two things. keeps chilly near the water which will be the case for pacifica, half-moon bay. but a light on shore flow does not make it inland. you will be hot. it will stay mild. hot inland starting friday and a cool morning friday in oakland for the parade. concord, 85 degrees tomorrow. a couple of degrees above average. should be a comfy day in san jose. mid 80s walnut creek. and san ramon and pleasanton. 64 will be the high in san francisco tomorrow. novato, 80. your extended forecast calling for warmer weather friday through the weekend. we say hello to summer and it will feel like summer and zero rainfall the next seven days.

>> dod, live in cleveland with tonight's sports report. dennis? >> reporter: yeah ken. you may recall, you and i have been on the road with the san francisco giants. they won their three world series titles on the other team's field. the warriors followed suit. they took it to lebron and the cavaliers on their home floor. steph curry said he didn't want to return to oakland without
the trophy and he delivered tonight. the cavs turned the ball over 16 times which proved costly. off the steal, curry whips the pass to harrison barnes. they led by as many as 13 in the first half. but the cavs make their run. tristan thompson cleans it up with the dunk. cleveland down just two at the break. they briefly took the lead in the third quarter. the warriors put a stop to the momentum with a 16-4 run later in the third. the ten-point lead. everyone wondering if they would gag the 15-point lead away in the fourth quarter. cleveland within seven points. now you live with a three and you die with a three. the warriors live by it all year. curry from downtown to push the lead to 11 and green finds iguodala in the corner. they each had 25 points. iguodala saves his best for the
finals and wins the mvp. warriors win 105-97 and let the celebration begin. >> i think, you know, we definitely are a great team. a team that should go down in history from top to bottom. >> we have competitors. guys who want to win. we all want to win. >> what do you think it means for the bay area? >> i have been around five years ago. we were still selling out games. on the wednesday night against sacramento. they have been with us from day one. that is why it will be so much fun to take this championship back there. >> yeah, okay, draymond is pretty good. he will be out the lead next year. they can never take that away. they can never take this away
from me. >> you know, they can never take that away. this was such a fun basketball team to cover. such character in the locker room. great group of guys. now we have to get the san jose sharks on board. they are next. hockey is the last team i have uncovered to win a championship. >> next year. >> wishing for it. all right, dennis o'donnell live in clevel
